Illustrated Notes on the Entomological Trips to various Provinces of 

East Turkey - II. Kop Dagi and Vauk Dagi 

(Erzurum and Gumu§hane Provinces) 



Muhabbet Kemal Ahmet Omer Ko^ak 



During the recent entomological trip made by the authors on 23rd June,20o8S the Kop 
Dagi Pass (A§kale, Erzurum Province) and Vauk Dagi Pass (Gumu§hane Province), were partly 
evaluated from entomological stand point. The photographs^ and video records were taken by the 
first author for the archive of the Cesa. All the specimens collected by the authors are preserved in 
the Cesa Collection. Collecting information will be published separately. 

In this part of the series, the diurnal lepidopteran species, as well as some other insect 
groups, inhabiting in the Kop Dagi Pass in the District of A§kale (Erzurum Prov.), and in the Vauk 
Dagi Pass (Gumu§hane Prov.) were studied by the authors (Map 1). In the morning hours, two 
different localities on the South-East slopes of the Kop Dagi Pass were selected. First locality 
[Bozburuni] was an opening of Oak woodland at 1960m (Fig.i), above Bozburun village, and the 
second one [Bozburun2] is a degraded grassland with scarce Rosa bushes and higher at an 
elevation of 2330m (Map 2) (Fig. 2).
